It would be true to form.
The ex-agent told the FBI that they were aware of Clinton or her aides ‘removing lamps and furniture from the State Department which were transported to her residence in Washington, D.C.’
The female agent did not know whether the items were returned, the FBI noted.
The claim is particularly resonant for the Clintons, who left the White House with massive amounts of furniture and other items which they then either returned – including sofas, a chair, and an ottoman – or paid for.
In total they declared $190,000 in gifts as they left the White House, but ended up paying $86,000 in cash and handing back $48,000 worth of items – after public outrage at what they had done.
The State Department denied the ex-agent’s allegation, saying it was ‘not true’ and that the items removed from the building had been paid for by the then Secretary of State.
